Grupo Vidanta plans to sail the Vidanta Elegant luxury cruise ship from its resort in Nuevo Vallarta starting in the fall of 2019.

Mexico resort developer Grupo Vidanta plans to sail a 298-passenger luxury cruise ship from its resort in Nuevo Vallarta, giving travelers the option for a cruise and resort vacation. The company plans its inaugural voyage in the fall of 2019 on the Vidanta Elegant.

Grupo Vidanta refit the ship, reducing the number of cabins to 149. It has six public decks and dining areas, 11 bars and lounges, an entertainment venue, a full-service spa and fitness center, a top deck pool and several Jacuzzis, Vidanta said.
